W7R1 Best yet!

I just did w7r1 and it was my best run so far. I ran 2.47 miles (3.9km) in 25 minutes flat and managed my top speed for over a minute of running at 8.5mph! It's a miracle when just a couple of months ago I thought I was going to die after 90 seconds of running. Maybe I ran faster because just about every sports team was out in the park, so I didn't want to look like the lumbering whale I usually am lol...

I signed up for a 5k race a few weeks ago for a bit of pressure and today is the first day I feel like I wont end the race on the sweeper bus! Woohoo!

Go steady! False moves crock ankles!

Keep plugging steadily away and you'll be graduating in no time, and in one piece

Happy running!

Thanks for the tips misswobble, I promise I wont push too hard! I don't want to look like a giant, red whale in my first race photo after all ;)

Just hard enough so that I don't get chased round the route by the bus...
